In this imposing new volume, Saurabh Dube writes against the grain of understandings which often set up objects of intellectual inquiry as the singular yardstick for judging the scholarly novelty and theoretical validity of intellectual endeavours. The essays here eschew widely present intellectual habits and attempt to establish critical exchanges and interactions between different perspectives in the task of academic endeavour. The essays cover diverse ground in the fields of cast and sect in South Asia, colonial writings of vernacular Christianity and anthropology
